Abstract

Dielectric barrier discharges generated in a coaxial tip to cylinder configuration at atmospheric pressure by a 5-ns high-voltage pulse with sub-ns rise time were investigated with a fast intensified CCD camera. Different discharge characteristics were found for the breakdown during the pulse itself and in the subsequent reflections of the pulse. There is a transition from a complete diffuse regime to a breakdown in constricted channels, which finally cross the whole gap.
